CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Katelyn Sykes) -- Charleston police have detained two people, but have made no arrests so far in the investigation of three shooting scenes Monday night on the city's West Side.

The first incident happened about 10:30 p.m. at the Littlepage Terrace, just off Washington Street West. Police and the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office searched the property and found a gun and blood, but no victim.

At about 11:45 p.m. Charleston police were dispatched for another shots fired call, this time on Washington Street. Witnesses told police a group of people in two cars fired shots back and forth at each other. Police don't think anyone was injured.

The third scene was on Rebecca Street, where police said a woman waved an officer down and said her car had been shot at and hit multiple times on West Avenue. She wasn't injured.

Police believe one person was hit by Littlepage Terrace due to the blood found at the scene, but so far no victim has come forward and no one has showed up an any area hospitals.

Charleston police believe all three scenes are connected.

Police spent much of Tuesday morning interviewing witnesses. They are asking if anyone has any additional information to give them a call.
